PESHAWAR: The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) police on Sunday launched an inquiry into the death of an 11-old-girl who worked in the house of an incumbant member of the provincial cabinet.

The K-P inspector general police (IGP) Salahuddin Mehsud directed the Abbottabad police to conduct an inquiry into the death of the girl, M*.

The victim was employed along with her elder sister at the minister's residence.

Sources said that on January 25  Misbah had eaten some fruits. Consequently, she became ill and despite being taken to hospital she could not recover from the illness.

Girl found dead in well, police suspect brother killed her for 'honour'

The police, however, said that a case had not been registered by the family and are currently waiting for the medical report of the deceased and will proceed further accordingly.

M* had a hereditary disease which would cause her difficulty in breathing.

Her four-year-old brother also died of the same issue a month ago, while two of her siblings are still suffering from the same disease.

Mehsud has ordered the RPO Hazara and DPO Abbottabad to probe the incident.
